Hello Urban Gardeners, I’m Robin Plaskoff Horton, creative catalyst, Principal and Creative Director of Robin Horton Design, writer, and co-facilitator of The Blog Workshops. My years of design experience inform every product, trend, and story I uncover. Urban Gardens is my platform for sharing my love affair with city life, design, and nature with urban dwellers and others with limited spaces.
I will link you to the freshest innovative and eco-friendly designs, trends, and ideas for the stylish urban garden. I will explore and showcase what’s out there in the urban garden universe–from the amazing products of talented new designers, to community gardens experimenting with edible landscaping, sustainable urban agriculture and micro-farms, to guerrilla gardeners transforming derelict abandoned properties into lush, or at least, provocative garden spaces.
One of the world’s longest running international design competitions, Creativity Awards, has awarded its highest honor, the Platinum Award, to Urban Gardens. In addition, The Garden Writers Association bestowed both a Silver award for best electronic media design and a Gold award for best overall design across all media categories. In addition, Urban Gardens was one of only five blogs nominated (along with Epicurious and Mother Nature Network) in the Lifestyle category for a Webby –hailed by The New York Times as the “Internet’s highest honor.”
